ONE UNIVERSITY, THREE CAMPUSES
Located in the heart of Wisconsin, our three campuses offer a cozy Midwestern vibe. No matter what one you choose, you will always find a school that fits your lifestyle. Whether you love the city life, a small-town feel or recreation at your fingertips, you will find that and more when you choose to study at one of our campuses.
A 406-acre campus, UW-Stevens Point includes the 280-acre Schmeeckle Reserve and a 25-acre lake. There are 15 academic buildings, 13 residence halls and three student centers. The newest is the Chemistry-Biology Building, opened in fall 2018 and designed as a “science-on-display” facility with state-of-the-art labs and equipment. Jenkins Theatre, Michelsen Hall and Edna Carlsten Gallery in the Noel Fine Arts Center bring theatre, music and visual art to the campus and community. The campus is located midway between Milwaukee and Minneapolis at the intersection of Interstate 39/Highway 51 and U.S. Highway 10.

The Northern Aquaculture Demonstration Facility in Bayfield, Wis. offers hands-on learning through our biology program.
Central Wisconsin Environmental Station
The Central Wisconsin Environmental Station (CWES) is a 200-acre teaching and learning center located 17 miles east of Stevens Point on glacial Sunset Lake. Since 1975, we have been an integral part of the University of Wisconsin – Stevens Point College of Natural Resources program and is staffed with professional natural resource and environmental educators.

Explore 5 miles of trails and boardwalks, a 24-acre lake, and a large diversity of habitats that support numerous wildlife species.
Treehaven is Wisconsin’s center for integrating natural resources education, management, research, and recreation.
Northern Aquaculture Demonstration Facility
NADF is a one-of-a-kind facility in the Midwest and joins only a handful in the U.S. The state-of the-art, dynamic facility, showcases new advances in aquaculture system technology such as sustainable land based recirculating aquaculture, while also providing traditional aquaculture systems such as flow through raceways and outdoor ponds for industry based research projects.
